Dreamcast Beta Discs / booter - Interested in dumping
Wow. That title was a mouthful.
Hello everyone, first time visitor and poster. I was referred here by a few interested people on YouTube and I'm interested in looking into what I can contribute.
I got my hands on some Dreamcast beta discs that "fell off of a truck" and I'd love to get them released out to the community.
Here's the list of what I have:
Worms Pinball: According to Some lists on the internet, this was unreleased on the DC. There's a news story on it's cancellation over at IGN too. I do know that it was released under a PC compilation called Pinball Madness 2 or Addiction Pinball. I've heard both. There are two tables: Worms and World Rally Fever. If anyone's interested, I submitted videos and screens to Unseen64.net last year.
Anyways, the disc is handwritten on a burnable GD-ROM and labeled "Worms Pinball version 1.000" and dated 9/19/2000.
If anyone wants pics of the disc or anything, let me know.
Charge N' Blast: Bestowed a prestigious 5.9 on Gamespot, I haven't played this one myself before this version.
Another hand-written GD-ROM (they're all handwritten, I should probably state that for my own sanity). Almost looks misspelled as "Chargen't Blast"...and I don't think I'd be alone in that assumption. Disc is labeled version 11.28 and dated 11/28/00. The game was released in Feb 2001.
Iron Aces: WWII air combat game. Never played it until this.
Disc is labeled version .801 and dated 10/5/00. The game was released in Feb 2001.
Here are some gameplay vids I posted on YouTube:
Dream Coaster / Coaster Works: Two betas of the same game. Developed (and released in Japan I believe) under the name of Dream Coaster, this game was finally released as Coaster Works in December, 2000.
Dream Coaster disc is labeled version 2.0 and dated 7/27/00.
Coaster Works disc is labeled version 11-7 and dated (you guessed it) 11/7/00.
Lastly, I should mention that these games need a special boot disc. I haven't been in the DC Hacking loop for a while, but I can safely say the Utopia boot disc doesn't work.
Anyways, I can't seem to find it at the moment, but it's a sort of development boot disc with a Sega logo on it. I don't know if there's a special way that would need to be released...I do know I misplaced it once and tried to find something on the internet but never found anything close or different than that Utopia disc.
Okay okay, long posts stop here. If anyone can provide some guidance on how to get these out, I'd really appreciate it.
